GAMBLING ACT 2005 – Review of Statement of Principles

This is Teignbridge District Council’s consultation paper on the review of its ‘statement of principles’ as required under the Gambling Act 2005. The licensing authority welcomes comments from the police, the fire service, licence holders, businesses, local residents and their representatives.

The document sets out a draft statement of principles, which will guide the licensing authority when considering licence applications under the Gambling Act 2005.

The aim of the Act is to protect the public, especially children and vulnerable adults by trying to keep gambling crime free, ensure gambling is fair and open allowing people to enjoy gambling responsibility.

A copy of our draft statement of principles can now be viewed at www.teignbridge.gov.uk/statement-of-principleswhere you can see the changes proposed and provide feedback.

Feedback must be received by Noon on Friday 8 October 2021 at the latest.
